I don't want to ruin the WEEDS finale for anyone, so I guess...we can talk The Voice instead. - Kristy Carruba

-I guess I'm satisfied with how Weeds ended. It was a lot sadder ending than I thought it would be. Most of the answers I wanted, I got. For some reason, Doug's storyline was much larger than I felt necessary. I know many of you guys watch this show, but not live, so I don't want to ruin anything for anyone. So if anyone wants to discuss "offline"...shoot me a note. Curious to know if you feel like I do...sad but satisfied.
-I find it all very hard to believe that CeeLo and Xtina are sooooo busy with commitments that they need to take a break from the 4th cycle of The Voice but Blake and Adam will be back. Nothing against C & X, but honestly, I would think it would be the other way around. Blake and Adam have got to be WAY busier than those two right? Taking their place will be Shakira and Usher. While I'm sure both of them will be great, I am really going to miss Xtina's outfits and the wondering if this will be the show where the sticky tape stops working and everything just falls out for all of Primetime to see.
-At least we have season 3 of The Voice which just got under way. Last night, Melanie Martinez a girl with a big bow and a Michael Strahan smile started the show off. Not my type at all, but the guys all turned around and she went with Adam. I was actually surprised that nobody turned around for Cupid considering that apparently he already is somewhat of a well known performer. Although I've never heard of him. Brian Scartocci's version of "Isn't She Lovely" was great, plus as an added bonus...single Dad sob story. Beat Frequency got Xtina's attention. I didn't care for them at all, but I guess Xtina heard something I didn't. I was nervous that Blake wouldn't turn around for Liz Davis...he waited an awfully long time to hit that button, but it all paid off in the long run and Liz made it to Team Blake. I must have fallen asleep there. I have no idea what happened next.
-While I didn't love Bethenny Frankel's talk show, It didn't surprise me that it got picked up. She has Ellen backing her and her Bravo following, so makes sense that it would go National. I'm happy for Bethenny, but the show would never get a season pass from me. Way too annoying.
-For some reason, I thought that Californication was cancelled...it's not. I'm not sure if I said it was, or thought it was or what, but it's premiering on January 8th along with all of the other Showtime shows I don't watch, Shameless and House of Lies.
Not much else to report on today, so work on getting your Emmy Ballots in!
